Speeding up forensic investigations

It is best if every person involved in an investigative process has the ability to extract meaningful information from the vast amounts of data collected using powerful analytical tools in order to speed forensic investigations across the entire life cycle.

From the moment evidence is collected at a crime scene, to when an investigation is concluded, data is always flowing, and the LabVantage Forensic Navigator helps to manage that journey in one seamless forensic informatics platform.

There is no need to purchase, deploy, connect, test, and learn how to use multiple different systems when one can do it all.

Beyond the standard laboratory LIMS, the Forensic Navigator offers additional features. It gives law enforcement access to a secure web-based portal where they can monitor status, request examinations, and enter data in real-time.

The platform is the only option needed for precise, secure data storage and analysis as the investigation progresses — including property management, forensic lab analysis, medical examination, and investigative operations.

The analytical framework required to draw insight from the massive repository of forensic data is provided by the available analytics.

Regardless of the position within the forensic life cycle, Forensic Navigator provides the resources and access required to stay informed and make important choices.
